Abstact:-Reimagining Safety- Unboxing Gender
Gender based violence is a phenomenon deeply rooted in gender inequality and continues to be one of the most notable form of human rights violation within all societies. Freedom from the threat of harassment, and sexual assault is something that most of us have a hard time imagining.
This one-day workshop on imagining safety in a gender just space reiterates AUD’s commitment to create safe and gender just spaces for faculty and students within campus spaces. Academic institutions are, to a large extent, a reflection of the realities prevailing in society. As microcosms of society, it often mirrors its social fabric and with it, its narrowed gendered thinking, creating structures which are discriminatory for both students and faculty.
This workshop will provide a space to deliberate on issues of safety within the gender framework. Besides highlighting the challenges and opportunities of the same, the workshop will explore the role of students in mainstreaming gender and strengthening the institutional commitment towards creating a gender just society.
